Visitors were able to relax in the pleasant garden surrounds of HSG at the Gardens on Wednesday 9 December as Bundaberg Legacy hosted widows, Legatees and staff for their annual Christmas luncheon.

HSG at the Gardens owner Dion Taylor and his staff provided quality dining and great service to all in attendance.

Thankfully, the luncheon saw some cooler weather prevailing with a cool southerly breeze providing some relief from the recent hot weather for the 95 attendees, who participated in Christmas raffles, trivia and fellowship while being entertained by talented local musician Clem Soper.

The group’s widows and beneficiaries look forward to the annual event and take the opportunity to catch up with old friends, reminisce on good times gone by and share the loss of those gone to soon.

Bundaberg Legacy was founded in 1948 and since that time has provided support and fellowship to families who have lost loved ones as a result of their service in the Australian Defence Forces.

This important service is provided by the Legatees of Bundaberg Legacy who, along with professional advocates, provide a range of services to safeguard the interests of dependants, especially children in Bundaberg, the towns of Childers, Gin Gin, Mt Perry, Woodgate Beach, Bargara, Burnett Heads, 1770, Rosedale and Agnes Water and the surrounding rural communities.

Bundaberg Legacy is there in times of loss and grief, providing ongoing social support to families, working to ensure the emotional health and wellbeing of those they serve.

This work cannot be done without community support.

Donations and sponsorship are always welcome. Visit www.legacy.com.au/clubs/qld/bundaberg/ or call the secretary on 4152 5958 for further information and to learn more about what the group does and how it supports the legacy of the fallen.
